His research interests include synthetic methodology, supramolecular chemistry, and organometallic chemistry. Ultimately his goal after graduate school is to teach and do further research at the university level and to be a mentor to young minds.
He is known in the group and to most of his students as a “fountain of absolutely useless information”.
